Unleashing the full capacity of your people

When Should You Micromanage Employees?

How many bosses do you have who hover? One of them may be doing it for the right reasons!

How many bosses do you have who hover? One of them may be doing it for the right reasons!

Micromanagement has a bad name, and the image of the hovering, interfering, controlling boss is universally condemned as poor leadership.

But, we all micromanage our staff to varying degrees, and it has its place as a leadership tool as long as it is kept under control and has an end-point.

We recently found an interesting summary on ExecuNet.com full of senior executive perspectives on the utility of micromanagement. Their comments supported our position that selective use of the tool has a role to play in leadership. Here is a sampling of their quotes:

“Because micromanagement is generally used as a negative term, it doesn’t sit quite right with me. However, if it plays out as additional guidance, coaching, mentoring or monitoring in the face of poor results with the purpose of empowering the person being micromanaged, then yes, by all means, micromanagement may be necessary.” —Claire Cronier, FOUNDER AND CEO

“Great managers have a blend of both (hands-off and micromanaging approaches) and an adaptive, mentoring, learning approach to their staffs. Workforce diversity, rapidly changing business challenges and international competition can be overwhelming to an organization. Good leaders will step in and micromanage when needed, but know when to back off and let the horses run. Done properly, an organization can flourish, have some fun and make a lot of money.” – Anonymous

“The lack of micromanagement has not meant (no) regular communication. I have always had weekly one-on-ones with my direct reports and ad hoc informal one-on-ones with their reports. I developed this practice (early on) and it has helped me since then.” —Sachin Agarwal, CEO

This last quote makes a critical point. Avoiding micromanagement does not mean avoiding regular communication. Bosses need to know what their staff is doing. Otherwise they cannot help employees achieve their goals.

True micromanagers do not trust their employees to perform up to any standard. That is where the shift from constructive collaboration to destructive micromanagement starts. Great managers always have the goal of building unshakable trust with their employees, and “graduating” all of them to greater independence on the job.

As a leader, you hire talented people. Give them the latitude to work independently! If you have the impulse to intrude, first ask “how can I help?” Let them set the agenda for your involvement in their work.

How do you control the urge to micromanage a project that isn’t making the progress that you want? Can you selectively “micromanage” some people or projects and not others? How do you lead without inadvertently seizing control?

Let us know what you think!
